The Anti-Aging Movement

The luxury to
Worry about wrinkles,
War over weight
And endless waste
Keeps us distracted,
Ineffective and
Essentially ego-maniacal.

No amount of cream
Can cure or conceal
Our complacency.

Except
The voluntary
Purification process,
Burning and cleansing,
Renewing and refreshing,
Peeling back formative flesh.
Delivered from dire desire,
I decide to die to self
And live for Christ alone.
